Please Participate ONLY If You Have Ultra Leather Damage
« on: February 14, 2017, 09:15:06 am »
This pole will NOT expire.

Please participate only if your ultra-leather seating surfaces are cracking or flaking away for any reason.  If your leather-like seats are fine or wearing naturally, please do NOT participate.

As PC owners with the problem respond, we all will get a good idea as to when the problem occurred, and if the problem has been resolved by Paul's Seating, the supplier of seats to Phoenix.

We bought our 2011 PC used last August. It had some small areas of peeling on the sofa. In the short time we have used it, the sofa began shedding vinyl  like crazy. The front driver seats are beginning to go also. It looks awful.  I assumed since we are not the original owner, there was little recourse in asking Phoenix to replace. Now I see that this is a common problem for this year's model, I wonder.
We use no hair sprays, vinyl cleaner or any thing like that, so I was dismayed to read that the problem was assigned to hair spray, hair oil and the like.
Everything else about our 3100 is like new.
I wonder how this will unfold (no pun intended)

Given that I am the person who started this poll, I wonder if everyone else has the button called "View Results" to see how the poll is progressing.

Do you all have that button to see the progress?

Could it be you aren't logging in until you are ready to post something?  When I was viewing this thread as a guest (not logged in) I immediately saw the results.  However, if I visit this thread when logged in, it gives me the option to vote or click a link "view results."

We stay logged in 24-7.  :)(:
Edit: We can also add the "ultra leather" wall accent coverings in the front of the living space to the flaking issue. pyho

Considering three 3100s, 2010, 2012 & 2013. All three had peeling driver seats. One also had peeling passenger seat. One of three had driver, passenger, dinette and sofa "leather" replaced. Other two didn't replace anything.   Replacement by Paul's $325 leather, $175 fabric.

Seems the most used seat goes first then the others over time.  The 3100 in only PC model that meets our needs. Not sure if I will still consider a PC. The asking prices are such that I would expect better quality, especially after 4-5 years of use.

I am interested to see if PC changes fabrics or supplier for 2018. Being 0/3 is like striking out.

Very disappointed

All our seating has been replaced in our 2010.  We had custom recliners put in but not because of fabric failure.

There is speculation that during the end of the Great Recession, the manufacture/supplier of PC seats (Paul's Seating) switched vinyl material suppliers from USA to China which turned out to be an inferior product.

Our 2007 vinyl seats are fine, as is other PC seats made before the Great Recession.

I understand vinyl seats are no longer available.  When upgrading from cloth, direct human contact (seating) surfaces are now 100% leather.  All other surfaces remain vinyl.

It must to painful to all of you who have the self-destructing vinyl seats.  I feel for you.
